Racing Dynamics is the trademark of Racing Dynamics S.p.A., an Italian tuning company specialising in BMW Group motorcars. The company was founded in 1980 in Milan, Italy by Federico Pavoncelli, who is the creative force behind the brand, and his brother Francesco. The distinctive Racing Dynamics logo features a stylized version of the founder's family crest, surrounded by the RACING DYNAMICS wording on an emerald green background.
Racing Dynamics S.p.A. holds the unique distinction of being the sole non-German BMW tuner to have a worldwide market presence. In the early 1990s, Racing Dynamics backed some of the early BMW entries in the 2 liter BTCC, then went on to race its own cars in the Italian and Japanese Supertouring Championships. However, since 1996, the company has focused mainly on passenger cars, as racing proved to be too much of a distraction from its core business.
Racing Dynamics' claims to fame are its engine performance modifications, which are all developed at its own facilities in Milan, Italy. The Company's Italian style is quite pervasive in all of its product designs, which results in cars that stand out for their subtle elegance.
Starting in 2003, following a trademark issue with the former U.S. importer, Racing Dynamics S.p.A. began selling its products in the U.S. and Canada (only) under the RDSport brand name.
In 2007 Racing Dynamics, supplied its RS56 V-10 motor to Fisker Coachbuild as an option for its own Latigo CS.
